    Hello Katrina and group,
    Sorry I haven't replied sooner.

    I unfortunately cannot make it to the meeting on Aug 21. Thank you so much for the advance notice, and I was looking forward to meeting everyone.

    I did attend the Fox Valley Support Group mtg on June 8. It was very informative. They expected at least 20 people, but many did not show up. One of the drug companies provided a catered in dinner, and the physician's asst from Theda Clark gave a presentation on biofeedback.

    I got so much out of talking in person to others with this disease,
    and learning about the resources.

    I am sure the meeting on Aug 21 will be a great support to everyone who can make it.

    Take care,

    Stacy

    MARK YOUR CALLENDERS AND SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I plan on the meeting being August 21, in Stevens Point. Now I see this meeting as a chance to meet each other and such....so am planning very little unless someone says the word that this should be more than fun, hugs, and chat.

    Wi Group

    I did email her back in Jan, didn't hear back, then I noticed she had a different email address, so I tried that one. I did hear back and called her last night. She was very helpful, but did add that it is difficult keeping up with all the new people, with working full time and not feeling well at times. She is going to send me a list of folks in the support group, and the next meeting is in June. I will keep you posted on anything else I hear.

    Thank you!

    Stacy

    Stacyo I have emailed her. If she is the same person I have emailed before about this group she will ignore this email like she has all the others. She has had no interest in sharing info to her group about a different group. I hope things are different now, because right now the Fox Valley group is the only one listed in Wisconsin....and by talking to me some members of her group that are out of the Fox Valley area may be able to meet people in their area. ....In a way starting by covering all of a Wisconsin is a way to begin other small groups throughout Wisconsin.

    Anyway...thank you for your post.

    WI Support Group

    Hi Katrina,
    I would be thrilled to get together. I did find out about another support group-next meeting is in June. The person has her
    name posted on either this website under support groups or
    the other IC site. She is Karen, and her email is [email protected]

    Hmmm a name huh? Wisconsinites? IC Wisconsin? LOL I don't know. But ummm a flyer huh? Well what I plan on doing is telling my uro my email addy and that if any of his IC patients want to join a support group and meet up, let's do it. There's on in Appleton, but I don't know anyone.

    Hugs and love,
    Jess

    P.S. Cindy there is always room for you!

    Wanted to reactivate because I want to keep people thinking. I have been wondering if we want to have a name?

    What do we want to call oursleves?
    Do you think it would be helpful if I made a flyer about us you could print and give to your doctors?

    Just wondering.

    Sounds like a great idea, I recall Jess making that same suggestion... I live in Michigan and maybe I might be able to attend if I am felling well and can afford the trip

    ok...working on where....one place I am considering in StevensPoint. I have a little familiarity with the area so it works ok to me.

    One big request I have to everyone is to spread the word and try to get members.....ask your doctor if you can leave some info of a support group. If you want feel free to put [email protected] as a contact email on a flyer if you choose to make any. Let me know if you have any ideas. I am thinking we would meat in Spring or Summer...let me know when you cant.
